Site 164.. great views on the beach. Sites are good. Dog beach good. Lots of sand. Water clean. All site a bit too close to highway 17. The beach and views of superior make up for any road noise. I will go back.

Have been camping here for 25 yrs & is one of the most beautiful 5km sand beaches, incredible along the stunning north shore drive. A must see for camping or day visit.
